Threadbare hotel in good location

The facility is run down and my room had a broken toilet seat and a light that didn't work. The weather was warm and there was no air conditioning so staff braced my window open at street level which made me uncomfortable. The location is great and the staff were competent. I'd stay there again if the price was adjusted downward. Other hotels in the same price range nearby were in better shape. I stayed in two others.

only because I was in a hurry

I wouldn't stay here again. I needed a place on short notice to stay overnight, all I wanted was clean and safe and I got not very clean and not very safe. I got 'upgraded' from a twin to a double in the basement, which smelled like mold and the walls were dirty and banged up like a party happened in there or its just been ignored for years. At lower than street level there was no light, the shower didn't look clean enough so I didn't use it, and it was freezing with no space heater. I got no help lugging my bags downstairs and the elevator didn't go to that level. Im sure they werent sold out on a sunday night in march, but still I was pretty much ignored by the staff.

Bad hotel

More like a hostel than a hotel. Carpets stains,torn wallpaper no tea/coffee making facility's no soap or shower caps the window was broken so a cold room and the flat screen tv which was d only good thing about d room had a loud noise coming from it and only had 3 English channels.the free wi-fi we were supposed to receive wasn't working. No room service and no bar. There was also an elevator that did not work. All in all the only good thing about this hotel was its location

Weekend

Dark, poorly lit room half in the basement that needed a space heater to avoid freezing. Unspecified possible shower gel in wall dispenser instead of separate shampoo. One of the worst breakfasts possible for 10 euros. should be classified a 2 star hotel. for a 2 star it would rate " ok". They also charged an extra 10 euros on top of this site but this was not specified in this travel site. On plus side the room was clean. Easy walk to museums.

Groenhof is now BLISS hotel; okay for pr

Good location, one block off the #1 tram. Good room for rate vs. other local options. Convenient access from and to Central Station for train to airport.
